CoLA Refresh Project
CoLA is really quieting down now, with Rahul on break, but I did get to meet the 2 of the 3 new CMSTAs! Ingrid and I are working on developing some plans for weekly CMSTA meetings, and I’m excited to share more details about that once we have any solid ideas, which I definitely do not yet.
Intro Training: Style A&B Course Graphics
Maddy is helping me train up for some design work over the winter break, and one thing I’ll be doing is course graphics. I’m no stranger to Photoshop anymore, but all the online course formatting conventions are pretty LAITS-specific, so this training was very informative. I learned 2 standards for course graphics: Style A, which uses flat colors, and Style B, which uses background images. Picking the palette was fun, and I got to choose the courses, so I did 2 of my recent favorites I’ve taken.
Shortly after finishing, I got assigned a real course to do graphics, which is my very first official design project that’s not a training or CoLA Refresh. Exciting! I’ve basically finished at the time of writing, but I’m waiting for feedback to make some finishing touches, so I’ll be sharing it here once that’s done.
